White Wicker Bag with Appliqués and Seed Beads. 1950s. Maker: Midas of Miami. White wicker box purse with hundreds of seed beads glued to the front. It also features faux jewels and embroidered appliqués, including daisies, pansies and a butterfly. Pink satin lining and the typical Midas white and gold braid handle. I didn’t need another Midas purse, but since it’s my favorite mid-century designer, I couldn’t pass this one up. It’s not in the best condition, but it was reasonably priced and bargains like these are getting much more difficult to find. Also, pansies. How cute is that?
